6 Reasons Tim Burton's Alice Sequel Was Such A Failure

Tim Burton's take on Alice in Wonderland was a huge success, but the 2016 sequel, Alice Through the Looking Glass, was a massive failure by comparison, and the studio should have seen it coming. So many versions of Lewis Carroll's classic story have been adapted for the screen, most notably the 1951 animated Disney classic, but a whole 51 years later, Burton put his spin on the fairytale with the big-budget, Johnny Depp-starring 2010 movie. Alice in Wonderland capitalized on several Hollywood trends at the time, became a huge success, and it made over $1 billion worldwide (via Box Office Mojo), making it the second-highest-grossing movie of 2010.
